Washer - remove 4 screws (phillips)on the back of the panel, slide it sidways slightly and pull forward to release. remove clip behind knob ( kinda like the clip on old car window handles) remove knob and dial. remove 1 nut on timer, rotate timer to release. installation is just as easy, but put clip onto knob first then just push onto dial shaft, it will click when on correct.

Dryer - remove 4 screws (phillips) on back of panel and remove same as washer. dryer switch will have a little cam lock on it just pull it off the plastic retainer and rotate switch. Remove wires one at a time and put on new switch so as not to wire wrong. reverse for re-assembly
